Mazda’s all-new CX-9 has achieved a full 5 Star safety rating from national crash testing body ANCAP, with the large SUV scoring 35.87 out of a possible 37 points in local testing.

Frontal crash performance was rated 14.87 out of 16, while the CX-9 aced the side impact and pole tests with scores of 16 out of 16 and 2 out of 2 respectively.

Helping protect its occupants are three-point seatbelts on all seven seats, while dual front, front side and full-length curtain airbags are standard across the full model range.

Other standard safety equipment includes blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, a reversing camera, rear parking sensors and low speed autonomous emergency braking.

In the top-spec CX-9 Azami, lane departure warning, a collision detection system, lane keep assist, fatigue monitoring and a lane departure warning get added to the safety spec sheet, along with a higher speed threshold for the autonomous emergency brake system.

“We are delighted with the safety result for Brand-New Mazda CX-9, it offers peace of mind to families in the market for a premium seven-seat SUV,” said Mazda Australia managing director Martin Benders.

The CX-9 launches in Australia this week, with prices starting at $42,490 for the base CX-9 Sport 2WD and topping out at $63,390 for the flagship CX-9 Azami AWD.
